Death Toll in China Typhoon Rises to 42


China has raised the death toll from Typhoon Talim to at least 42.

The storm brought heavy rain and winds of up to 125 kilometers per hour Friday. The rain triggered landslides in the eastern part of China's Zhejiang province. Several people are also missing.

In one incident, nine people were buried alive when a mudslide crushed their houses in the city of Wenzhou. A father and son were killed when their house collapsed in the province of Fujian.

In Taiwan, the storm killed at least two people and injured dozens.

Talim eventually weakened as it blew inland over China.
